Will you take prevented planting acres for corn this year?

With major planting delays this year and then what seemed to be constant rain in many areas across the Corn Belt, there were acres meant for corn that didn't get planted. Final planting dates for corn have come and gone across the Midwest. Now growers have to make the decision: risk planting corn after the final planting date, take prevented planting payments, switch the acres to soybeans or even plant cover crops. What will be your choice for corn acres that didn't get planted this year? We'd love to hear your comments on this, and let us know what county and state you're taking prevented planting acres in.

In the southeast part of Gage County, NE., the farm tenants and operators got all of our corn planted by May 16 and the Soybeans all planted by June 6th despite the very frequent rainfall. It could be a good year.

Hancock county Iowa Will only plant 83% of corn and much of that late May and early June. No beans planted yet today. A lot of corn drowned out on hillsides. Where is the big yield coming from?

After talking with lender and crop adjuster we are risk off with 900 acres of beans this year in Winnebago Co. Northern Iowa. Less than 20% of beans planted here and coops said only 75% of corn went in. Today 35% of corn planted in most fields are AWOL.
